MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Twin Cities will be back in the 30s Thursday, and another clipper system will drop light snow across Minnesota.

WCCO Meteorologist Chris Shaffer says it will be cooler Thursday morning, but expect a rapid warmup during the day, with the high will reach 36 degrees in the metro.

A clipper system will arrive Thursday afternoon, bringing a quick burst of snowfall across the state, followed by a rain-snow mix as things warm up. In the metro, expect about an inch, while areas north of Interstate 94 could see 2-3 inches. It will be windy, and the timing stinks with the snow falling during the evening commute.

Rain showers could move in behind the initial burst of snow. It stays mild Thursday night before a cold front passes early Friday. The wind will be strong, and the temperatures will fall during the day. This will lead to a big cool down Saturday, which will feature a high of 12 degrees in the metro. Things should warm up again at the start of next week.
